I've heard more than one Trumper talking head whine about how angry the Republican

senators are about Nadler saying they were voting to cover up for Trump AND Schiff saying they had to impeach to prevent Trump from cheating to win the next election.

If the shoe fits------

1. It's all true. Are the GOP Senators going to be part of the cover-up?

9. Mad is a good thing. It means they are being exposed in

graphic technicolor. It means they know it. It means there’s absolutely nothing they can do to counter the stark contemptible facts. It means they know history will show their total and utter disregard for the Constitution, for democracy and for the rule of law. So they get mad. They get angry. It’s all they can do.

This will hand completely, ALL the power, to the executive branch (i.e. The President), regardless of all furture Presidents.

so I called his office and said that Nadler was simply telling the truth. If it walks like a duck......
Who else whined about this? I will call their office.

THAT'S GOOD!

You know damned well that's what you're about to do. But you just don't appreciate Democrats saying it OUT LOUD. And all WE can say is: GET OVER IT! (To quote a jackass with a pocket full of shamrocks.)

23. May their heads explode in unison....

so Democrats can get on with the business of governing.

I'm reminded often of this article from 2006 by Alan Wolf that puts it all in perspective, but today with some names changed (from W's days):

Why Conservatives Can’t Govern
by Alan Wolfe July 1, 2006

Link: https://washingtonmonthly.com/2006/07/01/why-conservatives-cant-govern/

(snip)
Contemporary conservatism is first and foremost about shrinking the size and reach of the federal government. This mission, let us be clear, is an ideological one. It does not emerge out of an attempt to solve real-world problems, such as managing increasing deficits or finding revenue to pay for entitlements built into the structure of federal legislation. It stems, rather, from the libertarian conviction, repeated endlessly by George W. Bush, that the money government collects in order to carry out its business properly belongs to the people themselves. One thought, and one thought only, guided Bush and his Republican allies since they assumed power in the wake of Bush vs. Gore: taxes must be cut, and the more they are cut–especially in ways benefiting the rich–the better.

But like all politicians, conservatives, once in office, find themselves under constant pressure from constituents to use government to improve their lives. This puts conservatives in the awkward position of managing government agencies whose missions–indeed, whose very existence–they believe to be illegitimate. Contemporary conservatism is a walking contradiction. Unable to shrink government but unwilling to improve it, conservatives attempt to split the difference, expanding government for political gain, but always in ways that validate their disregard for the very thing they are expanding. The end result is not just bigger government, but more incompetent government.

24. They're upset over being accused of exactly what they're doing,

yet not once were they ever offended that trumpie was wiping his fat, orange ass with The Constitution every goddam day.

Odd priorities you have there, senators.

29. In my experience, when you point out someone's poor behavior...

they generally react first with anger. Usually, more on that below.

This is playing out on a much grander scale, but it reminds me of turmoil at a youth sports organization a few years ago. I had to tell a few parents to knock it off (childish hurtful behavior about something that was absolutely none of their business). They flipping lost it and tried to make me the problem. Their attempts to get me out of the picture didn't last long, in fact, I was subsequently voted into a position with even more authority. But boy did they make it uncomfortable for awhile.

These GOP Senators are no different. And here's the catch.

If you point out poor behavior to someone who doesn't know what they are doing is adversely affecting others, they will generally deflate and have an "oh no, I had no idea" moment and in relatively short order, thank you for not allowing them to continue being an ignorant ass. i.e. saving them from inevitable embarrassment or shunning.

If you point out poor behavior to someone who knows darned well what they are doing is wrong...that's when you get the angry response.

To make a long story short - they know damned well they are in the wrong. To me, that makes it even worse. They sure as fuck know better.
